Giancarlo Stanton has not reached expectations so far as a Yankee. Injuries really have set back Stanton and hindered his play throughout his tenure with the Yanks. I know many Yankees fans have become restless when it comes too Stanton, however, I still love the guy.

I don’t know how Tanaka is alive let alone how he was smiling later that day in the hospital.Of course when Stanton is healthy, he takes it into his own hands to pass his injury bug on to his teammates.Continue reading Do I Have A Crush On Giancarlo Stanton?
Brian Cashman is the longest-tenured GM in baseball. After starting as an intern in 1986 and being promoted to assistant GM in 1992, Cashman was named the General Manager prior to the 1998 season. He was reluctant to take the job, as he knew that George Steinbrenner had a history of firing people in power positions any given moment. Luckily for Cashman, the Yankees went on to win the World Series in his first three seasons at the helm.
In the twenty seasons since the Yanks’ 2000 World Series victory, Cashman’s teams have experienced multiple phases with varying levels of success.

There’s one thing standing in the way of a baseball season in 2020, and it isn’t coronavirus; it’s money. In a shortened season where fans will not be in the stands for most, if not all, of the games, players and owners are jockeying to see who gets screwed over the least. Players want the original pro-rated salaries the sides originally agreed to in March, but owners now want even more because they said they stand to lose more money without fans spending money on tickets, parking, and concessions.
